In 2010, UPHA became a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization and subsequently established an Endowment Fund as part of a multi-year resource development effort. UPHA has been receiving donations since early 2011, with 100% Board Member contribution, and plans to support this fund long term with donations from foundations, corporations, businesses, individuals and members, as well as former UPHA leaders and their families. All funds are placed in an investment account determined by the UPHA Board of Directors. Interest derived from this investment is to be used for UPHA projects and Utah community outreach projects approved by the Board.
